Leading Nigerian bishop condemns arrest of judges

October 14, 2016

The president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria has condemned the arrest of judges on suspicion of corruption.

“We have been very clear with the President in our various meetings that the rule of law must be upheld,” said Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama of Jos, according to a Nigerian daily.

“I condemn anything that has no legal backing,” he added. “We are not just a banana republic; we are a serious nation populated by millions of people and we should measure up to international standard. We should be seen to follow due process.”
